English term or phrase:Why we get back what we give out
LESSON 1. CONCENTRATION FINDS THE WAY. Our two natures; one wants to advance; the other wants to pull us back. The one we concentrate on and develop determines what we will become. How you may change your whole career and accomplish miracles. We can be completely controlled by our concentrated thought. How can you make an "opportunity". One man's opportunity is usually another man's loss. A very beneficial practice. ****Why we get back what we give out****. A wonderful encouraging tonic. Every man that is willing to put forth the necessary effort can be a success. The man that is best prepared to do things. How to make your services always in demand. How to reach the top. The man selected to manage is not usually a genius. He does not possess any more talent than others. What he does possess that others do not. Why a few succeed and so many fail.
Does "we get back what we give out" mean the same as "you reap what you sow/you reap as you sow" and is "we get back what we give out" a neutral statement or a negative one?
Explanation: You are correct in your reading of the phrase. It is however stated as positive - the man who puts forth the necessary effort (gives) will succeed (get back).
